Finding True Self 

‘Join Us and Rediscover Your True Self – The Loving, Limitless Self That’s Buried Deep Within’’

In today’s chaotic world, many of us find ourselves troubled and confused by worn out belief systems and self-sabotaging patterns. Finding true self is all about peeling away life’s preconceptions and removing the layers of self-doubt that prevent us from discovering the wealth of love and joy within.

At Sedona Mago Retreat, we’ll guide you through an exploration that will help to unravel the mysteries of existence. Our Finding True Self retreat has been mindfully created to provide you with a spiritual gateway to uncovering the authentic ‘you’ – the ‘you’ that’s all-powerful, all-loving, and virtually limitless.

Here, surrounded by Sedona’s naturally healing energies and an endless landscape of majestic red rock vistas, you’ll find the freedom to just “be”. And as you merge with nature’s boundless serenity, your heart will expand, the floodgates will open, and you’ll be caught up in an infinite sense of inner peace and love for all beings.

Finding True Self starts at 7:30 pm on the first day and finishes at 11:30 am on the last day.

Finding True Self ~ the Journey…

Day 1

You’ve experienced the invigorating lift of a healthy dinner – now it’s time to experience yourself.

Today you’ll be given the opportunity to rediscover your potential, and to cultivate the inner power that comes from finding true self.

When was the last time you took a good look in the mirror? Are you an empty cup, or a full one? It’s time to figure out just who and what you see when you look into your own eyes.

Awakening is the focus today as we rekindle the body’s energies in all their various forms.

Day 2

Today is all about the heart chakra – the very center of the chakra system, and the place where your true self resides.

Are you a caterpillar, or a butterfly? Are you ready to spread your wings?

As you unveil your heart and experience finding true self, you’ll delve through the layers of thought and emotion until you begin to undo the negative patterns that have been keeping you from your divine essence.

We’ll revisit your past and connect with the present on our way to clearing a path for the future.

Day 3

Today you’ll awaken with a renewed sense of self.

After morning meditation and a rejuvenating vortex encounter, you’ll resonate with light particles like never before!

You’ll recognize the importance of honoring your heart and keeping it open. All those things you’ve been taking for granted – the breathing, the posture, the smile that lights your face – have taken on a new sense of priority.

This morning you’ll be introduced to a range of wellness tools that are designed to improve the energy of your chakra system and keep it circulating freely.

And as you take everything you’ve learned back home with you, you’ll understand that finding true self is a personal journey: one that’s meant to be shared and expanded as you connect with the world around you.

  • Finding True Self has provided me with unbelievable personal growth, motivation and deep healing. Master Ilchibuko is an amazing spiritual guide and mentor. It is through her loving guidance that I have come to find my soul’s calling and I am forever grateful to her.  ~Kristin A, Sedona, AZ

  • I wasn’t sure what to expect taking the “finding true self” workshop.

    What I experienced was an incredibly loving, powerful and condensed workshop that made me really look at how I have been living my life and how to proceed forward. The perceptions I have about myself been cracked open and I now get to face life head on, with new eyes, and a more positive outlook.

    The workshop is led with both incredible wisdom and love as you are surrounded by an caring and committed support staff.

    It should be required for every human being!  ~Christian Taylor, Screen Writer of Lost and Teen Wolf

  • I have participated in similar personal growth weekends, and what I found different with "Finding True Self" was the loving "space" the staff and Master Illchibuko created. I was able to look deeper within, express myself authentically, discover what it is I really want, and left feeling an enormous amount of love in my heart -- not just for others, but for myself.

    I attribute this to the amazing staff that truly had every participants best interest at heart. While it's difficult to find words to explain it, the feeling was "safe". After the weekend, the support continued, practicing some of the tools learned together as a small group. Oftentimes after weekends like this, we leave, feeling amazing, and then as life bumps happen, may feel lost again. The extra support the week following the event was very helpful and supportive for me.

    FTS is a transformational weekend that I highly recommend to others serious about personal growth. While each person's experience was personal to their needs, I discovered inner acceptance, understanding, forgiveness and self-love, while learning specific tools that help me in my daily understanding of my true self.

    I extend many, many thanks to the staff and Master Illchibuko for your unconditional love and support!  ~Deanna Czerwonka, Sedona, AZ

  • While serving in the U.S. Army,  I sustained injury which required years of treatment.   I was diagnosed with Auto Immune and Connective Tissue Disorder.

    I recently attended a workshop aptly named "Finding True Self".  I highly recommend this Training to anyone who wants to enhance or change their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.  The healing power of this workshop has had a profound affect on me.  I went in for a routine follow up for my health condition shortly after attending the workshop.  I am so thrilled to share that I am now in remission and off yet another medication!    I am truly touched by the guidance I received from staff and workshop attendees.  If you can dream it, YOU CAN DO IT! ~Terri L, Cottonwood, AZ

  • I found through my participation that I am a lot more courageous than I thought. I learned a lot more about who I am and what I want. And I was given the gift of a much stronger connection to myself and universe, while my heart is more opened to other humans walking along with me here on earth.

    My gratitude is increased, I feel stronger & more centered, and I wake up with more of an excitement about being alive than I have in ages.
    I'm much more connected to being present in the NOW and able to continue on a daily practice in Qigong , yoga & mindfulness in a way I never have before. Highly recommended.” ~Leslie C. Latour Rimrock, Az

  • “Finding True Self' is truly a journey of self-discovery, purpose and connection. For me it was an entirely freeing experience and I left feeling a whole new sense of love, peace and motivation. The exercises were fun, insightful and extremely helpful in digging deep within yourself to find out who you really are and what you want out of life. I'd recommend this workshop to anyone - it will be one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Thank you to Ilchibuko for guiding the journey, and to all of the staff who helped make this eye and heart opening experience possible!” ~Danielle K

  • The timing was perfect as I am visualizing the turning point for my purpose here in AZ. What I knew deep within my heart and soul was Blessed and empowered. Old patterns were shaken. Forgiveness of self and to others is being granted. An Enlightenment. Awakening. Rebirth. Are there words?

    I understand clearly that this is an hourly self discipline to maintain a balance, trust, continued activation, focus, grounding and inner growth. I wish to continue and to learn more. ~Christine S Cottonwood, AZ
